Forbidden Games ( ), is a 1952 French language film directed by René Clément and based on François Boyer's novel, Jeux interdits.

While not initially successful in France, the film was a hit elsewhere and is still one of the most popular French films in the US. Criterion released the film on DVD in 2005.


The film recounts the death of five-year-old Paulette's (Brigitte Fossey) parents and of her pet dog in a Nazi air attack on a column of refugees fleeing Paris, Francemarker during World War II. In the chaos, the traumatized child meets ten-year-old Michel Dollé (Georges Poujouly) whose peasant family will take her in. She quickly becomes attached to Michel and the two attempt to cope with the death and destruction that surrounds them by secretly building a small cemetery where they bury her dog and then start to bury other animals, stealing crosses from the local graveyard.

Child stars Georges Poujouly and Brigitte Fossey in a scene from "Forbidden Games"
